On Worship

The other day I was having my hair done in a local salon. A lady came in whose daughter was getting married. She said that the problem was that although the daughter had been reared as a Catholic, she wanted to be married in her boyfriend's Protestant church. One of the (many) reasons was that she (the bride) did not get anything out of Mass. In spite of 12 years at Catholic school, the young lady is obviously ignorant as to what Mass is. Mass is the unbloody sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, the central act of worship offered to our Creator. When you receive Holy Communion you receive God into yourself. But if that is not enough for you, then think of it this way: the Omnipotent Almighty Eternal God, Who keeps the universe in existence, has invited you to His table. He owes us nothing; we owe Him all of our love and adoration. When we assist at Mass, it is to worship God and ask for forgiveness of our sins and the sins of the world, not to be filled with warm fuzzy feelings.
